Christmas and Easter are important and exciting times in our church.
Our Christmas season starts with Advent a time of preparation and expectation. At our Sunday service throughout Advent we are reminded of the Christmas Story leading to the birth of Jesus through the lighting of the advent candle. We also have a Christmas meal together and there are usually several community events that we host. We also join with the other Burbage Churches on the last Friday before Christmas for "carols around the tree" and we have our own Carol by Candlelight service the last Sunday before Christmas, which has proven to be the most popular of the year! Over the years we have had Christmas Parties, Shows and more recently a Nativity Service where we have all dressed up. It would be great if you could come and celebrate this special time of year with us!
Easter is the most important time of year for Christians. It is where we are reminded that Jesus died and three days later rose give us an eternal relationship with God. We mark this with a shorter reflective Good Friday Service at 9:45am on Good Friday morning and a special Easter Family Celebration on Easter Sunday at 10:45am.
We also mark Harvest in September/October time, have a light party at Halloween and a yearly thanksgiving service - so there is lots going on!
